The date we left Ontario this year, was the latest since we started fulltiming - December 22.
This was necessary because the College semester was extended this year due to the faculty strike in the Fall. We had been at Milton Heights Campground since the beginning of November, and during the two weeks prior to leaving, we experienced some very cold weather (-14C, 7F), and a few inches of snowfall during the night before we left.

childhood home in Tupelo
Christmas afternoon we reached our two-day stop, Natchez Trace RV Park, and settled in for the evening. The next day, we went into Tupelo, MS and spent an enjoyable day visiting the downtown area, and the Tupelo Automobile Museum, followed by a great dinner at Fairpark Grill in downtown Tupelo. This was actually a celebratory dinner for The Navigator’s birthday, which was on December 23. She decided, with her usual wisdom, to celebrate in Tupelo three days later, because it is one of her favourite places.

Good To Be On The Road Again.
After a busy summer and fall,
with our new business Huronwoods RV Service,
along with teaching at the college, I look forward
to 4 months of travel, relaxing in California, then
a month in Northwest Florida in April.
